I'm trying to animate a text possibly for a logo, making it into a seamless loop. The effect I'm trying to achieve is that of a wave like rippling but only on a portion of the text.
I still want it to look as if it is connected to the part of text that's staying static.
I've seen suggestions of using turbulent displace effect, but I can't get it to loop. Also not certain how to keep one part of the text static while getting the waviness in a correct direction.
Should I mask it out?
Is there any better way of going about this?
Edit: Here's a static image made in photoshop with warp tool. So, I would like only bottom half of each word have this effect and obviously to animate it.
